Bio

Feel free to use any of my photographs on your Find A Grave pages or memorials or for your personal albums so long as it is according to Find A Grave policy and copyright law and you give me appropriate credit. If my photos are on a memorial you manage and you want to add your own, feel free to delete mine especially if the maximum number of photos has been reached on the memorial. Find A Grave rules about photos have changed since I first began working on the website. Here they are taken directly from the rules page:
"Any member may add a photo to a memorial. Each member can upload 5 photos per memorial. A memorial can have a maximum of 20 photos. Someone who sponsors a memorial can add an additional 10 photos (for a total of 30 on the memorial). Famous memorials are a special collection where photographs are usually limited to one good biographical photo and 2-4 grave photos."

Also, consider sponsoring those memorials of close friends and family. After all, it is only $5.00 and you can add those 10 extra photos to that memorial. And for life of the memorial, it will never be cluttered with advertisements again. What A Deal!

If you find that I manage the memorial of one of your first generation relatives, I will be glad to transfer it to you provided your request is according to Find A Grave policy and the memorial is not one of my first generation relatives according to Find A Grave policy.
I would also like to make a suggestion to all of you who contribute to Find A Grave about grave photos. When you take a grave photo, either as a photo request or for memorials you create or manage, please either adjust your camera focus or crop the finished photo so that the inscriptions on the tombstone can be read by anyone using Find A Grave. Also, if an adequate photo of the grave is on the memorial, please do not add another since it simply prevents someone else from adding a more appropriate photo if the maximum number is reached.

I am an active auctioneer licensed in KY. I am also a retired mental health and substance abuse therapist with more than 20 years of experience in the fields of homelessness, substance abuse, general mental health, and juvenile delinquency. I also write with several publications and citations primarily in the field of Appalachian Studies and Culturally Appropriate Human Services in Appalachia. I also have published more than 20 short stories all across America and in Germany. My blog can be found as listed below or by Google Search of the phrase: My Appalachian Life. I grew up in Knott County Kentucky within sight of three cemeteries: the Hicks Family Cemetery, the Turner Cemetery, and the UMWA Union Cemetery. I do some genealogical research and love to visit cemeteries since they can give me a great deal of information about a locality in a very short time. I also used to travel in the Deep South and love to visit Civil War Era cemeteries in TN, AL, GA, & FL. I used to have a habit of eating a lunch of boiled peanuts, pickled pigs feet, and a 20 ounce Coke while walking through an old Southern Cemetery. I highly recommend it as a form of relaxation.
